The National Heritage Digitization Strategy (NHDS) is seeking guidance from the community on metadata best practices to help make digitized content more discoverable. In order to achieve this goal, the NHDS is currently planning a Metadata Summit, to be held in 2020, which will bring together the members of the GLAM community so that we can identify needs and issues regarding heritage metadata. We see this as an opportunity to build some common ground around definitions, data models, technologies and processes. We envision a summit with lectures from different GLAM professionals to better understand the ecosystem with brainstorming sessions to gather your input on different topics.
This survey will help us to determine content and structure for the meeting in order to make it as enriching as possible.
Metadata is a broad subject so we must streamline the scope of the summit and target the essential topics.
The survey consists of two sections and should take no more than 15 minutes to complete.
For any questions, do not hesitate to contact us (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Thank you for your time and ideas!
